The Ducks have placed defenseman Ken Klee on reverse waivers as of 9 a.m. (PST) Monday morning. If another NHL team claims Klee before 9 a.m. Tuesday morning, the Ducks would split his remaining salary for this season with that team.
The 37-year-old Klee has played in three games with the Ducks since being acquired in a Sept. 26 trade that sent veteran defenseman Mathieu Schneider to the Atlanta Thrashers. Klee was scoreless, with an even plus-minus mark and four penalty minutes.
USA Hockey announced Monday it has selected the Buffalo Sabres and HSBC Arena in Buffalo, N.Y., as the host for the 2011 International Ice Hockey Federation World Under-20 Championship (commonly referred to as the IIHF World Junior Championship). Dwyer Arena on the campus of Niagara University will serve as the secondary facility for the event. The 10-nation tournament features the world’s best players under 20 years of age.
from the Toronto Maple Leafs,
Luke Schenn is staying with the Toronto Maple Leafs. Best get used to the idea. It’ll be this way for a long time.
Leafs head coach Ron Wilson Monday confirmed the 18-year-old Schenn would not be returning to the Kelowna Rockets.
“I said if he was one of the top four defencemen on our team he would play,” Wilson said. “He’s easily in the top four.”
